Trying to side what to use my one a month loan on for Amazon Prime. They have a bunch of Jill Barnett books for Kindle on the list.  I don't need full blown erotica but I like more than a couple of chaste kisses.   PG-13 or R rated is preferred.

It's been a while si nce I read any of hers and only a couple total but I don't recall them being racy at all - remember some sex but I read them more for the light humor and storyline  and the ones in my tbr I'd read for the same reasons unless someone posts that they're racy! they weren't georgette heyer clean but dont' recall them being up there with elizabeth hoyt either

I've only read Imagine, which is on my keepers shelf as it was such a fun book, but it did have a sex scene.  A lot of sexual tension, I'd say more PG-13 than R.

I'm good with PG-13.  I just get disappointed when I read a romance and there's like just a chaste kiss or two in the whole book.

I love Jill Barnet, her books are a lot of fun, but not too racy. Bewitched was one of my favs.

Hmmm, I only specifically remember the sex scenes from one book -- Wicked -- but they were really hot. Not erotica-graphic, but definitely R not PG.

What everyone has said - I love her books. Just the right combination of sensual and humor.

"My wife has exploded." One of the funniest lines ever. Never mind - I was thinking of Jill Marie Landis. Great book.

But I stand firm in seconding Barnett - loved all the books I've read by her.
